Sneinton, Nottingham UK experimental artist, Guy Birkin primarily “focuses on the production and perception of aesthetic complexity in the visual and sonic arts, and how this relates to evaluations of artworks.”
On Bits, Birkin explores generative music composition using algorithms and phasing patterns. “bs01e” opens the release with gurgling wet pops and organic percussion sounds combined with resonating tones that slowly builds into a dark sythn-driven IDM journey. “Ovst3p-m12” is created with heavy breathing synthesized drum machines and granular synthesis, which are seamlessly assembled into a evolving dark clinical composition. “it will bibble around” is a quirky track full of dismantled clicks, claps and cuts that rhythmically morph into a clean sparsely constructed melody. ”odd7c3” leaves the listener with a haunting atmospheric closure created with reverberating gloomy synths and unsettling alien tones.
